Get Set network school of the month for February 2011!
23 Feb 2011
Congratulations to St Mary’s Grammar School in Northern Ireland!
The school has been using the Olympic and Paralympic Games as a tool to celebrate diversity and friendship.
‘Here at St Mary’s Grammar school, we have formed a proactive Olympic group and have embarked upon a journey that will culminate in a visit to the Games in 2012. Students have met former Olympic athletes, designed t-shirts and taken part in taster sessions of Olympic sports. The Olympic group has also been on a three day residential trip to explore the subjects of discrimination, prejudice and diversity using the Olympic and Paralympic Values. Students focused on the subjects of age, gender, race, disability, and religion. St.Mary’s Grammar School is striving to leave a lasting legacy for their pupils based on the Olympic and Paralympic Values.’
The school was selected as a result of their brilliant blog posts displaying their Olympic and Paralympic inspired activities. The school will receive an athlete visit as a reward for their efforts and a letter of congratulations from Seb Coe.
